Security Onion: Installed and Now What?

  • Chris Mohan
  • Thursday, July 11th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

Security Onion is one the easiest and most effective way to deploy a free Network Security Monitoring (NSM) solution. Download it from SourceForge.net, boot the ISO image, follow the super quick setup guide, then Security Onion is up and running. See, it's easy. But what do you do after that?

We'll go through the steps to make sure everything is tested, alerting, and working as expected before you run into a real attack. By going through these steps now, you'll avoid that steep learning curve of figuring out how to do real incident response with Security Onion. Throw in a couple of today's current attacks, just to see what they look like, and you'll be ready to go out and build out your own working, pre-tested NSM environments.

Those of you that have never heard of Security Onion or NSM, go download it immediately from http://sourceforge.net/projects/security-onion/files/ then read all about it at http://securityonion.blogspot.com/
